Hello Bill, Thank you for your quick response and the suggestions.Edgar's wife is also listed on the cemetery stone, but I went back to look at the stone and realized that she is probably still living.It's been awhile since I looked at the stone.
We have not found an obituary but we will keep looking.
We may send for his SS application.At least it might list his parents' names.
We are going to check with the Veteran's Admin also.
We appreciate your suggestions and will follow up where we can.
